"Eliminating" the Opposition

The "pro-choice", as-long-as-you-don't-chose-to-adopt, groups have joined the mudslinging. An ad by NARAL suggests that SCOTUS nominee Judge Roberts, provided legal aid by filling papers “supporting . . . a convicted clinic bomber” and of having an ideology that “leads him to excuse violence against other Americans”.

The ad is false.And the ad misleads when it says Roberts supported a clinic bomber. It is true that Roberts sided with the bomber and many other defendants in a civil case, but the case didn't deal with bombing at all. Roberts argued that abortion clinics who brought the suit had no right use an 1871 federal anti-discrimination statute against anti-abortion protesters who tried to blockade clinics. Eventually a 6-3 majority of the Supreme Court agreed, too. Roberts argued that blockades were already illegal under state law. The images used in the ad are especially misleading. The pictures are of a clinic bombing that happened nearly seven years after Roberts signed the legal brief in question.

I wonder how NARAL believes this happened. Do they think Judge Roberts is a wizard & got hold of a time turner that did survive the DA member's fight against the Death Eaters? Is there something going on that J K Rowling & the Ministry of Magic is not telling us about?

NARAL’s ad not only misleading, but also lying. In fact:
In words and images, the ad conveys the idea that Roberts took a legal position excusing bombing of abortion clinics, which is false. To the contrary, during the Reagan administration when he was Associate Counsel to the President, Roberts drafted a memo saying abortion-clinic bombers "should be prosecuted to the full extent of the law."
In the 1986 memo, Roberts called abortion bombers "criminals" and "misguided individuals," indicating that they would get no special treatment regarding requests for presidential pardons. Reagan in fact gave no pardons to abortion-clinic bombers.

Sure sounds like a supporter of clinic bombers to me.

On the other hand, the superhero, "Dianisis", of a new animated video by Planned Parenthood, says, while standing in front of pro-life demonstrators, that:
"Under the First Amendment of our Constitution they are allowed to express their beliefs…Yet they can sometimes become unruly and sometimes they get a little too close. But mostly I just wish they would disappear...."
and proceeds to take out a gun & shoot the pro-life demonstrators with condoms, which encase the demonstrators for a moment & explodes in a puff of black smoke, thereby "eliminating" them.

Dawn Eden, another girl blogger from NY :-) has a great post on this video with still photos. She also has a link to Saint Kansas, who has posted frame-by-frame stills that show a pro-life demonstrator being decapitated. Lest you think that the violence of the pro-abortion movement is limited to cartoons, please visit , which shows that there are many instances of attacks on pro-lifers that the media has chosen to ignore.

Now, just for one second, imagine that the pro-life movement produced a video, aimed at young people, whose superhero brandished a gun at demonstrators & made them "disappear".
